7:46am

out. everybody is home for their thanksgiving break. when they get back, the urgency will be there but you have to raise your eyebrows right now and wonder how much they can get down and will they just be able to broker sort of a framework deal and then fight next year over the details. the reason i raise that is because, for example, if you do go off the fiscal cliff, yeah, the tax rates go up. you have the automatic budget cuts kick in. and that's pretty simple. if you want to cut a deal, for example, the republicans say we're interested. we'll give you democrats, maybe more tax revenue but what about the whole issue of getting the situation where you -- the tax code, a lot of people would argue if you are gonna reform that, you have gonna that have to do that in more than five weeks. i remember the last tax code, that took most of the year, not just between thanksgiving and christmas. there are some people that feel that both sides may be
7:48am
interested in letting us go off the fiscal cliff and negotiating back from there. maybe that would be an easier way to handle things. >> it could be. remember one thing, the automatic budget cuts that we're going through now, that's just the first in ten such installments that would go over the next ten years. think about all of the yelling and screaming you are hearing about. you have to do it again next year and the year after that and the year after that. i guess i look -- i look at it several days. one way to hold back on the increase of the size of government. i can rather a lot of democrats saying, you know what? one way to get back at the republicans is to go off the cliff. i don't know what's gonna happen. i know everybody is playing nice right now. boy, there's not much middle ground. we'll have to see when they get back after thanksgiving, tori. you think the winning money would be putting on the washington strategy of kicking
